Farm gates are closed for a reason - if you open one to get through then
Do NOT climb over gates or fences.

You can also find us on Facebook (@moffatwildlife) where you can read all about the latest work and sightings on Dyke Farm Nature Reserve. Click on the logo to go there.

If you wish to join our club (and new members are very welcome) application forms are available from the usual outlets. Alternatively, you can download an application form from here. The form is in Microsoft Word format so should be readily viewable/printable (if it opens in a 'protected view' mode there is usually an option to enable printing). Our membership fee for a year is currently £12 per adult (discounted to £20 for two adults living at the same address) but free for those under 16 years of age.
Non-members are also welcome at any of our meetings but are asked to pay an admission fee of a modest £3.00 per adult (free for those aged under 16).

Clicking on an image on our pages will give normally give an enlarged version (maximum 640 x 480 pixels approximately). Higher resolution images may be available on request (subject to the copyright holder's agreement) - contact John for details. If submitting photographs, cropping and/or resizing to a maximum of 640 pixels wide and maximum of 480 pixels high would be appreciated. This would save us work, is good enough for a computer display and lessens the chance of the image being 'stolen' for use elsewhere.

A real rarity - a Little Egret was seen on our reserve yesterday (15th) by Iain and Jon. The Wednesday Walkers Group also reported seeing a small white heron which could only have been the same bird. Little Egrets are uncommon in Scotland at the best of times so for one to visit us is a real treasure.

All material for 2019 has now been moved to our archives and can be accessed via the menu.
